A newlywed couple did the unthinkable to 'punish' guests who promised to show up at their wedding and ended up failing.
Doug Simmons and Dedra McGee decided to share their losses with those who never showed up by sending them bills of the seats that were empty at their reception.
According to New York Post, anyone who originally said "yes" on the RSVP was slapped with a GHc1.4k bill to cover their costs.
The couple from the USA held their wedding in Jamaica at the Royalton Negri Resort and Spa at GHc700 per head.

On the invoice, the no-shows were given a due date of August 18 to pay up for their empty seats.
The bill went viral online, with many reacting to it and saying how they would have reacted to getting one.
According to Doug, being stood up at their wedding made him feel some type of way, and they felt they should not pay for those who promised to attend.
In the invoice, the couple noted:
“Because you didn’t call or give us proper notice that you wouldn’t be in attendance, this amount is what you owe us for paying for your seat(s) in advance
They even gave different platforms as payment options and advised the no-shows to contact them and confirm which payment method suited them.
Doug noted that it was not all about the money because they were hurt and disrespected by those who did not show up at their dream wedding.
Wedding gets married to photo
In another hilarious wedding story, a lady recently walked down the aisle with a framed photo of her man in hand.
The unidentified lady had met the man on Facebook. The two then agreed to the wedding following series of chats and phone conversations.
The man reportedly sent some money and his picture for the wedding, stressing that he was busy abroad and could not make it in person.
In images made available, the lady dressed in a wedding gown held onto the photo throughout the ceremony.
In another frame, she struck poses with the bridesmaids and groomsmen while also holding the man's picture.
